Voice of the Analyst Study: An Inside Perspective on Security Operations

In the security world, the bad guys and their malicious activities are frequently the center of attention. We think it’s time to shed some light on the good guys--the Security Analysts—and what a day in the life is like for them. The 2017 Cyentia “Voice of the Analyst Study” is the first report to give the security analyst a collective voice that reveals new insights about their jobs and how this might affect a security operations center. Security analysts are our most critical resource, and often one of the organization’s largest operational costs. While these analysts are on the front line of cyber defense, it may be unclear how they spend their time and how they view their role. Join Wade Baker, Cyentia Institute Founder and Chris Calvert, VP Product Strategy and Co-Founder, Respond Software as they share the surprising results of the survey, including security analysts' opinions about catching the bad guys and what needs to change in their work environment so they can be more effective in their role.

    There’s a lot of talk about how things keep getting worse for security operations. The attacks keep coming—and they’re more dangerous, more frequent, and more successful than ever before. The reality is that we’ve been saying this every year since security operations became a part of enterprise IT. The balance of power has never favored the defenders. Only now, with the advent of decision automation and security analysis software, has it become possible to envision a real shift in power.
